2021-2022 CAMPUS MINISTRY RETREATS

Retreats are great opportunities to not only delve into your relationship with God but to get to know your fellow

students in a relaxed environment. All students at Allentown Central Catholic need to participate in at least one retreat in

addition to the 40 Hours Retreat, which takes place during school in December. Registration forms are available in the

Campus Ministry Office 2-3 weeks prior to each retreat or as posted in school and on the announcements. 

Students are welcome and encouraged to participate in multiple retreats throughout the school year.

Our 2021-2022 Retreat Schedule has not been set for the upcoming school year; retreats will also be added throughout the school year.
